Star Guitar – Synthesized Guitar Application

Available In: App Store       Price: $3.99  

Star Guitar Star Guitar is a synthesized guitar application. It comes with 23 stock strumming patterns which you can slow down or speed up based on how many BPMs (beats/minute) you have it set at. There are also 3 different types of effects… “Silver” which is an acoustic type sound, “Electro” which is a clean electric guitar sound, and “Jazz” which is similar to “Electro” just with a little more base range. It has the full scale of chords (A-G) except that it’s listed “C,D,E,F,G,A,B” probably because that’s where the scale starts on the piano… who knows? Anyway, you can also choose from a few chord modifications for example: #, b, m(minor), 7th, and Maj(or)/sus4 and you can pile all of these on at the same time if you would like so you could create an “F#m7” or “Am7”<---which for some reason sounds awful btw. You have the option of recording your own songs or song ideas which would be ideal for the singer/song-writer on the fly! Star Guitar also features a metronome which would come in handy if you were not using one of the preset strumming patterns. [Read more…]
